Time as an Important Aspect of Life
According to Greg Lindberg, time is the only gift one can use to beat a genetically superior person or even a person with more resources. Greg Lindberg advises that time tends to be the only independent aspect not influenced by your family genes or even resources availed to you. One, for example, would need to make sure that he or she dedicates specific time to a business for example. Greg Lindberg will recommend that where sharper people spend time on a project, you would need to spend even more time on a similar project to catch up with them.
According to Greg Lindberg, a gifted student, may spend only five minutes to grasp a concept while another may take up to thirty minutes to grasp the same concept. A student who spends more time to grasp a concept would need to spend even more to be on par with a student who takes lesser time. But in a case where the student who takes longer to grasp a concept accepts that he or she is not as gifted as his or her colleague and spends more time on his or her studies, he or she has high chances of catching up. You would need two-time intelligence curves where one studies more while the other is more intelligent. But time can make all the difference where the less intelligent opts to dedicate his or her time to studying more. The more, the less intelligent student would take more time to study, the more he or she increases his or her chances of beating the sharper student. That means that a student with better genes would score very high marks the moment he or she dedicated his or her time to studies.
A person with resources or even gifted in some way would turn things around at a higher rate in a case where he or she invested more of his or her time at work or at school. It is unfortunate that some of these people with more resources at the beginning only tend to compare themselves with people around them and hence do not achieve as much as they should if they spent more time working or reading. Most of such people only put effort to keep them on top as opposed to exploring further to a wider scope. In a situation where one has resources and dedicates his or her time to them, he or she would stand an opportunity of creating a gap other people would have a hard time catching up. Greg Lindberg will tell you that some people tend to get to good schools which when combined with a good opportunity makes them some of the world innovators and business entrepreneurs. Greg Lindberg would make it sound even more dramatic by saying that time makes all the difference over time. One would be surprised how that extra work he or she do every day can make all the difference in the long run.
